Our Veteransâ€™ Silent Battle
Veterans who are discharged or retire from the service are like fish out of the water when they re-enter society as civilians once again. Many of them are ill-prepared for the transition. The problem is made worse by factors such as service-related disabilities, mental health issues, lack of skills to compete with the existing workforce, fears about learning new skills, and culture shock.Â
Everything feels different from the strict order and systems followed in the service where they established their reputations as they rose from the ranks. As civilians without military titles or ranks, they are simply regular Joes vying for the same jobs as the next man. Often, their military experience is not considered an asset when they apply for jobs.
Soldiers who were deployed overseas for extended periods also encounter difficulties in their relationships with their family members when they come back home for good. Sadly, this gap sometimes leads to estrangement. Â
Soldiers who took part in bloody battles have the worst of it as many of them suffered physical injuries and mental health disorders. These problems continue to plague them long after they have parted ways with the service.Â
Reach Out to Our Suffering Heroes
Now that they have returned to civilian society, the best opportunity to thank them for their service is by ensuring that they receive the same amount of respect that they commanded when they were still in the service. Helping them live a life of dignity and peace is what they deserve.
Youâ€™ll be able to help us provide this kind of life to needy veterans in your city when you participate in our Granite City, Illinois car donations program. Weâ€™ll auction off your vehicle and use the proceeds to support the programs of our veteran-focused nonprofit organization partners. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofits will use the funding to deliver the following services to their beneficiaries:
- Housing assistance for veterans who are homeless;
- Educational scholarships and tutoring support for those who seek to pursue higher education;
- Job training and mentoring for those looking for stable and rewarding employment;
- Financial and other forms of aid for destitute, low-income, and homeless veterans;
- Various forms of assistance for those confined in hospitals;
- Therapeutic activities to help rehabilitate disabled veterans;
- Nature-based psychotherapy, team building, and family dynamics development programs for veterans and their families; and
- Peer support for ailing veterans, their families, and caregivers.
Aside from these services, our charity partners sponsor events aimed at encouraging companies and organizations to give back to the veteran community.
